PsychoMachia: 7 Deadly Sins & 7 Holy Virtues

Jerry Portelli's avatar Jerry Portelli

PsychoMachia translates to the battle of the souls. The 7 deadly sins and 7 holy virtues were each reinterpreted with circus/sideshow personas. Each photographic image was digitally manipulated and then hand transferred to individual canvases. To give the appearance of age to each canvas, coffee grounds were used to stain the image.
